    Clutch lever reach

    Due to a genetic problem called Dupytrens Contracture which is causing the fingers on my left hand to bend over and is a real pita I am struggling to reach the HP clutch lever fitted to my 2018 S1000XR.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a clutch lever with a shorter reach which will still result in the clutch operating properly?

    Thanks  :002:

    Yep Synto’s reduce the reach and feature the post underneath the clutch lever to mount the microswitch cam to as well, so the switches still work as they should.

    If it’s of interest I have a pair of black ABM Synto levers for sale which I took off my XR last week just before I sold it. Not got around to sorting pics and ads for all the bits I removed yet that’s all.

    Hi Orbits
    Unfortunately I have already placed an order for a new Synro clutch lever but may possibly be able to cancel it

    What type are yours

    short or long?
    or
    Evo - which are adjustable for length?

    How much do you want for them?

    Thanks
    Ian

    On a guitar forum I belong to if someone posts about getting a new git if no pics then we post a Hello Kitty guitar until they disprove it.
